"*sigh* Welp... let's get started."

There are 200 DigiCards to collect in total: 152 appear in Story Mode at random times in specific chests. acedawg4 has uploaded a solution containing the locations of the chests that have the possibility of containing a DigiCard in the Card Fighter achievement. The other 48 have to be purchased in the Collection menu.

You'll need to beat Story Mode with most of the characters for the Legendary Digimon DigiCards. You can play through once as Shoutmon and once as Dorulumon to unlock everyone. I say most because some of the Digimon can digivolve into the same Legendary Digimon as each other. For example, when you beat Story Mode with Veemon, you unlock his Legendary Digimon along with Wormmon's because they're the same. But since you have to defeat the Legendary Digimon to save the DigiCards you get in the Lava Pit as there's no phonebooth, you'll have to beat Story Mode as all 12 of the Digimon anyway.

Now for the Story Mode DigiCards, you can follow a spreadsheet created by Gearwing65. It shows which Digimon you have to play as to drop certain cards as well as which levels they drop in. FrozenFlake posted a link to it in the comment section, but since it may be deleted, here's the link to the GameFaQs page chart: (http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/824721-digimon-all-star-rumb... Cards)
Some can be dropped from other Digimon as well. The DigiCards will start coming easy at first, but after collecting around 80, you'll be seeing them less and less often and instead get 100 bit gold bars. Luckily, you can simply save at the beginning of a new chapter (or at the end of one) and keep reloading that save if you keep getting gold bars. However, afterwards, you have to save at the phone booth once you get a DigiCard to keep it. Also, don't try to spawn the chest with a potential card in it, leave it, save at the phone booth, and then go back to open it because it'll just disappear on the reload if you do. This may not be the case on Chapter 4, however, as the chest is already sitting there from the start and you can save at the the phone booth without it disappearing. If anyone can verify that the content of that chest changes through this method, that would be greatly appreciated if I don't verify it first.

As for the DigiCards you buy from the Collection menu, you need to collect a grand total of 748,200 bits to purchase the remaining 48 DigiCards. Yes. That's only 1,800 bits shy of it being 3 times more than the requisite for the Diving in Bits achievement and that one takes a hell of a long time already considering you only make about 7,500 bits per playthrough and each one is about an hour long. So you would have to play the game for approximately 100 hours to get that many bits (more than likely even longer)! That's DOUBLE the time of the requisite for the Thank You Very Much! achievement!

Unfortunately, since the Story mode DigiCards rely on luck and the Collection menu DigiCards rely on grinding, all I can provide are tips for playing through Story Mode aside from just following Gearwing65s spreadsheet, breaking every box, barrel, and chest you come across.

When it comes to bit grinding, in my opinion, the best character to use is Shoutmon. He's got great running speed for dodging enemy attacks and a single light attack from him can hit an enemy multiple times. You can also try to sneak in a Savage Microphone combo (X, X, X) which is quick enough for you to be able to dodge the bigger enemy's next attack if you can start it early enough and if the enemy has a decent cooldown length which is also random to a degree. Sometimes, it's 2 seconds and sometimes half a second and anything in between.

You can try your hand at mowing down a group of small enemies or you can try to nimbly pick them off one by one, which in my opinion is the smarter option in cases where there is a big one in the area unless he's a good distance from the action. As a matter of fact, always try to take out the small enemies before getting to the big one(s). The fewer enemies in a general wave that you have to bob n' weave around, the better.

Also, since your attack damage can stagnate if you use one attack multiple times, it's encouraged that you add some variety to your strategy. But here's what I would suggest: Just keep using the same light attacks on groups of small enemies and on single large enemies. In cases where there're more two or three large enemies in a wave, that's when you should start switching up your attacks so the attack damage stays sharp until those times. Focus on one big enemy at a time because as I stated before, the fewer you have to deal with at once, the better. If you're at only two Apemon, then you may be able to get away with just picking at each one since their cooldowns are reletively long. Also, assuming that you're familiar with the maps, you can get away with adding the variety to the final enemy or wave of enemies before you enter the Digimon battle.

One final note, I would recommend saving your Digivolution for the Digimon battles so you can get a decent headstart on them... unless you have the time and patience to stand in place taunting the meter up. Or if you have a turbo controller, you can just take a rubber band to the X button or something and wait for it to fill up that way while you're off doing something else. However, on the field, if you're in a pinch and low on health and being swarmed with enemies, then okay. But still be careful, you may have Digivolved, but you're not invincible. It also doesn't help that you're a much bigger target now so try to play it safe when you can. While Digivolved however, you can block as many attacks as you need to without worrying about getting stunned. Just don't panic and still keep an eye out for opportunities to fight back. In short, Don't be like Snow: Don't just rush in with guns blazing. Come up with a plan.

Now as for the Digimon battles, you can find ways to exploit the AI's idiocy to your advantage. For example, in the Flag Battle in Chapter 6 (King's Castle), the first thing your opponent will do is jump in place like an idiot reach for the flag that's slowly falling. You can take advantage of that by performing a fully charged heavy attack to get him in an air battle to just start whailing on him. Yes, he'll get the flag in the process, but you'll more than likely just knock it right off him in the air battle. Afterwards, you can go grab it yourself.

Now here's the fun part: Go up the stairs and try to get your opponent down onto the first floor (if he isn't already) by either attacking him and launching him off or manipulating his movements by stepping down onto the first step up on the side your on, in which he'll just jump down to the first floor. Then you can knock him back, then go back up to the top floor and he'll try to get up to you. Staying on the second floor, you can move to the left half of it to make your opponent go to run up the left set of stairs. Then you can move to the right half to make him immediately start running to the right. And Voila! You just made your AI opponent an official dumbass! As long as you still have the flag in hand and as long as he doesn't go up the first step, you'll be fine until time runs out. And don't worry, he's not even smart enough to hit the lever in the middle. Just make sure to grab the items that spawn up there. Otherwise, he'll eventually decide to just go for them himself. But aside from that, Have fun! I know I did.

Anyway, back to the achievement. 100+ hours, dude. Honestly, I don't blame you for not wanting to even attempt this, but if by the highly unlikely chance you do go for it, all I can really say is good luck. You're gonna need a LOT of it as well as time, dedication, and toilet paper. Don't say I didn't warn you.
